By "image strip" I mean a sequence of images all concatenated into one, single, long image. For example, assuming each frame is of equal size at 128x128 pixels

------------------------------
| 1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |  5  |
------------------------------ 

The image strip above would have dimensions of 640x128.
How can I convert this to a GIF file so that I can have to loop through frames 1 to 5?

You can use ImageMagick to do this.

Use the crop operator to crop/separate the images, then combine them into an animated GIF with different frame-specific options (delay etc.) as required.

If there are no frame-specific options then I think you might even be able to combine both the steps (i.e. frame cropping and animated GIF creation).

  • Thanks, I was not sure what to use in ImageMagick but that will be useful. – MxLDevs Jul 14 '13 at 18:59

You can download Imageforge for free, and import the image strip as an animation. Then tell the program how many frames, and it will automatically create the animation.
